After watching through the BBC series Sherlock, I jumped into listening and reading the original Sherlock Holmes stories by Doyle. I'm quite enjoying them thus far! The Hound of the Baskervilles was fun and suspenseful; though I did find myself becoming a little bored towards the end. I enjoyed that Watson was the main protagonist and it was great to hear him interrogate characters and use his best Sherlock deducing skills.
The reader, Bob Neufeld, is GREAT! Lovely voice and easy to understand, he makes it dramatic and brings the characters to life. Please read the rest of the Sherlock Holmes novels/short stories!!
